Philips CM200


This is an FEG (Field Emission Gun) EM scope which allows high resolution when operating at 200kV. It is equipped as a cryo-EM scope suitable for single particle analysis. It is also a tomography microscope (plastic sections are allowed on this scope). The goniometer stage is called "compustage" as its position is controlled by the scope's computer. Tomography sessions are run using a Tietz acquisition software with the 2K Tietz CCD camera. However, the field of view for structural investigations at the cell organisation scale is limited to single frames.
